The Hotchkissville Historic District is a historic district in the town of Woodbury, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1] It encompasses most of the historic village of Hotchkissville, which is centered at the junction of Washington and Weekeepeemee Roads. The village began as a dispersed rural agricultural community, but developed in the 19th century with the arrival of industry, primarily the manufacture of textiles. Despite this, the village has retained a significantly rural character, and includes a broad cross-section of 18th- and 19th-century architectural styles. It includes 160 contributing properties, including:[2]

  • Bela Potter House, 2 Easy Street, Italianate, 1847
  • John Ways House, 6 Easy Street, Italianate, 1847
  • Chester Knowles House, 10 Easy Street, Italianate, 1847
  • Eli S. Peet House, 152 Washington Road, Greek Revival, c.1835[2]:9
